  1. Drivers won't install normally - must disable driver signature enforcement


    Since upgrading from Windows 7 several months ago, no drivers can be installed normally unless driver signature enforcement is disabled.

    I wonder if this has something to do with being discretely warned that there was a driver conflict with my NVIDIA GTX 660 and it was marked incompatible with Windows 10. I booted into Windows 10 fine, but I noticed from the get-go that I couldn't upgrade its driver (generic NVIDIA installer failed error, even after running DDU in safe mode), and some installers for other programs wouldn't even run because of the highly outdated display drivers. Over time, I noticed that I am unable to install/update any drivers.

    On a side note, I believe this is also the reason I am unable to get Samsung DEX working, as Windows Update fails to install the latest driver (doesn't work when manually installing, even with sig enforcement disabled).

    What do?

    To resolve this issue, let's use the command prompt to disable driver signature enforcement permanently on your computer. To disable, follow the steps below:

    • Click the Start button.
    • On the search bar, type Command Prompt and then right-click
      Command Prompt
      in the results.
    • Select Run as Administrator, and then select Yes.
    • On the command prompt, enter bcdedit.exe /set nointegritychecks on and press
      Enter.

    Disabling driver signature enforcement

    Hi Fabio,

    Driver Signature Enforcement is one of the security features that we make to make sure that only signed drivers can load on your system. Note that disabling driver signature enforcement will install drivers that weren’t officially signed. Install only the
    drivers you trust. Follow these steps:

    • Go to Settings > Update & security >
      Recovery
      > Advanced startup > Restart now.
    • Choose Troubleshoot > Advanced options >
      Startup Settings
      > Restart > F7 or 7.

    Once it restarts, you may now install any third party drivers. Note that the next time you device restarts, driver signature enforcement will be enabled again.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.
